Degrees and Certifications:
Hello. My name is Linda Accetta, and I am delighted to be returning to Smart's Mill Middle School as one of your Reading Specialists and AVID Resource teacher. Originally, I am from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I earned my B.S. in Elementary Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I spent 10 years as a classroom teacher, before going back and earning my M.S. in Education/ Reading Specialist from Shenandoah University. This year will be the start of my 14th year as a Reading Specialist and I am excited to meet all my new Mavericks.
I live in Stephens City, Virginia with my 3 children, Jacob-20, Ethan-18, and Ella-16. In my free time, I of course, love to read, spend time with family and friends,hike, and travel. (Especially to the beach.) This year I will be entering my 24th year in education, and am very much looking forward to meeting and working with you all.
